“In 2016, Rolling Stone magazine declared Sunflower Bean “NYC’s Coolest Young Band” before the release of their debut, Human Ceremony. Lo-fi recordings and bedroom pop seemed to dominate the three-piece’s Brooklyn home scene which allowed Sunflower Bean’s spacey, psychedelic and classic rock ‘n’ roll influences to stand out in a vibrant realm all their own. After releasing Human Ceremony, the band has primarily been either touring or recording for the past two years, which should come as no surprise as Oh My Rockness (NYC) called them 2014’s hardest working band. The band has drawn comparisons and genre-labeling from psych-sludge-indie pop all the way to the shimmering ballads of Fleetwood Mac. Their style is dynamic and vast, incorporating lush, almost melancholic tones one minute and artful swagger the next.” Shirley Griffith (CLTure)
The Nude Party congealed as one unit in the southern mountain town of Boone, NC in 2013 and gained their namesake very literally. Bonded by isolation, house party debauchery, a religion based on pushing the limits of bad taste, and a precocious predisposition towards the Kinks, the Animals and the Velvets, they have burgeoned into a rock and roll act to be reckoned with.
